the thing with feathers,
the jewel in the box,
the glass half full,
the hopeful heart carries these and more
well beyond the surface of the spirit’s sanctum.
they share a spark, these things,
that only death can douse
and even then,
methinks that death’s merely the next
in an endless loop of life:
life in countless colors,
fierce and frail forms,
spiraling passages to kaleidoscopic planes
hope never dies unless,
like a child never wanted,
it is exposed undefended to the elements.

the bluest of hearts begins – tentatively – to renew.
